Top Things to do with Children in Liverpool this Summer

It can be tricky keeping children entertained over the summer holidays, there is nothing worse than getting stuck for ideas and wasting a day in the house! Here is our guide to the top this to do with children in Liverpool this summer.

Liverpool Wheel

See all the fantastic sights the city has to offer all at once. On a clear day it’s hard to beat the Liverpool Wheel. Situated next to the Albert Dock and Echo Arena and just a 10 minute walk from Liverpool One, it’s the ideal spot to see some of Liverpool’s most famous buildings. From the top of the 60 metre high wheel you get amazing views of the 2 Cathedrals, the 3 Graces, and on a clear day the Welsh hills.



Knowsley Safari Park

One of the most popular tourist attractions in the North West. Knowsley Safari Park allows visitors to get up close and personal with some amazing wild animals. What’s more as the park is modelled on an African game reserve, the animals roam free and you see behaviour which is closer to what would happen in the wild when compared to a zoo.


Underwater Street

Located amongst Liverpool’s waterfront attractions, Underwater Street is a unique venue for families of children aged 2-10 years. Six exciting zones, four craft tables and themed activities such as the pirate treasure hunt ensure a fun-filled day for all visitors. Highlights include the climbing wall, the real car to paint, the giant bubble area and Imagination Village where children can dress up and go to work in our shops.

Every weekend and school holiday we provide a schedule packed with fun and entertainment. With a new show or workshop every 20 minutes time just flies by and you’ll wonder where the day went!

Otterspool Adventure Centre

From the Ariel Assault Course which is one of the largest in Europe, to the 50ft climbing and abseiling tower there is something to test the nerves of children of all ages at the Otterspool Adventure Centre. Even the little ones are taken care of here, as they have now added a soft play area and a bouncy village to their list of attractions.
